ISKCON Unit Threatens Defamation Case Against Maneka Gandhi

Maneka Gandhi Elvish Yadav

Taking strong exception to Bharatiya Janata Party leader Maneka Gandhi’s alleged remarks that the “ISKCON sells cows from its Gaushalas (cowsheds) to butchers”, the Kolkata unit of the temple body on Friday said that they are going to file a Rs 100 crore defamation case against the Sultanpur MP and that notice has already been issued to her regarding the same.

“The comments of Maneka Gandhi were very unfortunate. Our devotees across the world are very hurt. We are taking legal action of defamation of Rs 100 crores against her. We have sent her a notice today,” Vice-President of ISKCON Kolkata, Radharamn Das told ANI. 

This came after a viral video of Gandhi surfaced recently, in which the founder of People for Animals could be heard alleging that the ISKCON is the “biggest cheat in the country which sells cows from its gaushalas to butchers”. 

Responding to it, Das said, “How can an MP, once a Union Minister, say a lie against such a big society without any evidence? She is saying (in the purported video) that she visited our Anantpur Gaushala but our bhakts (ISKCON members) there do not remember the visit.” (ANI)
